...with the audience invited as bring your friends to work day!

Better grab this one folks B4 it's Gone! A real sleeper. My new favorite of the year, along w 3/20, 06/17, & 4/5. DeadBase 42...Hah! they missed the boat on this one. It's not San Fran, New York, Boston, or Atlanta...It's Orlando & who would have thunk?

The boys play carefully & relaxed. The mix is absolutely perfect, as if they were playin' for a Live album release.

They fire off w a Jack which is crisp & smooth, w Bruce adding some vocals. Early on, the perfection is evident as Bobby is totally on with his traditional classics which normally are hard to pick a best out of the thousands, but how about maybe the best BTW & one of the best Promised Lands, at least in this late era? Followed by one of the best Crazy Fingers where Jer just nails it.

And the cream of the show, as others have stated in the higher downloaded & reviewed version, best version of R&C, and a tasty perfectly played PITB>UJB>PITB.

And I can't belive nobody has mentioned, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS SPACE.
Somewhere around 2:15, good ole Jer sneaks in a Close Encounters theme seamlessly amid the spacial chaos, followed by a keyboard Close Encounters ~4:10-4:30, & then drums Close Encounters. The theme is mixed intermittently at random by each individual, almost like the savage Eleven! WoWWW! It works! Only the Dead could pull off this spontaneous piece of musical intervention on the fly, & all the chaos is organized & intertwined into one brilliant masterpiece with dreamlike qualities. If you can't catch it thru sterio speakers, then I suggest a pair of headphones to help dial it all in. I'm starting to notice Jer's background sneak in other 91 Spaces.

Then-after Phil nails Box, with an ending verse composed of a Phil & Jer duet. Bobby sounds like he is straining in TOYLT, so as to keep his normally energetic vocals down to a smoother & more relaxed mellow studio pace. Baby Blues end the night soft & sweet w a little bit of marshmellow dreaminess added by Bruce on accordian.


But what's up w the Jack Straw filler? Was surprised when I heard a JS w Donna doing backup...after all, it's 1991. Wish it was noted where it's from.

Oh yeah, this is the superior Sbd version, bar some minor static in Space on both Sbd's. I sometimes have to wonder if some of these uploaded Sbd's by Unknown are Charlie Miller under disguise for test. I recall a few other superior Nick's Picks.

Every time I hear this version of "Reuben and Cherise" it amazes me ! It's such a difficult lyric to sing, and Jerry nailed it perfectly...
